Quick EQ Fixes for Vocals

Hey Producers! Today’s quick tip is all about EQing vocals to make them shine in your mix. EQ is one of the most powerful tools you can use to bring clarity, warmth, and presence to your vocals. Here are some quick EQ fixes you can implement right now:

Cut the Mud, Add Clarity

  1. Low Cut Filter: Start by cutting everything below 80-100Hz to remove unnecessary low-end rumble.
  2. Cut Around 200-250Hz: If the vocals sound a bit ‘muddy,’ make a narrow cut in this range.

Add Warmth

  1. Boost at 150-200Hz: A subtle boost here can add some warmth to thin-sounding vocals.

Add Presence

  1. Boost at 4-6kHz: This is the ‘presence’ range. A slight boost can make the vocals cut through the mix.

Add Air

  1. High Shelf Boost: Around 10-15kHz, apply a high shelf boost to add some ‘air’ and brightness.

🎯 Actionable Tip: Always EQ in the context of the mix, not just soloed. Make incremental changes and frequently A/B to make sure you’re improving the sound.

That’s it for today! These are general guidelines—every vocal is unique, so use your ears and tweak as needed. Happy mixing! 🎚️
